Portraits

Why  Portraits? 

Because photos aren’t for today. People who see engagement photos as a mere test shoot for the wedding or as a way to get familiar with being photographed are seeing photos as only for today.

But photographs are for the rest of our lives.

From stunning lake-view portraits to heart-touching candids, Jarvis Photography is your source for outstanding family portraiture at Lake Tahoe.

As Tahoe’s most experienced photographer I have built our business for over 20 years by showcasing Lake Tahoe in our work.

As beautiful as Tahoe is, it’s a surprisingly difficult place to photograph…it can be awfully bright and contrasty here!

Over the years we have perfected techniques to deliver stunning images where both the people and the lake look great, even under the most challenging lighting conditions.

Most sessions last about 60-90 minutes and give us an opportunity to do both large and small group photos as well as candid pictures.

You can expect a relaxed yet upbeat atmosphere and the personal touch that Jarvis Photography is known for. Your family portrait or family reunion photographs will be among your most cherished possessions.
